The Kenya’s Community team is acknowledged as the stars of the month for July.

We applaud the team for doing an excellent job of balancing all of the study’s community engagement activities while also delivering all of the community-based research activities. The study has been able to successfully complete all of the community data collection procedures because of their commitment and hard work. The team actively participated in Health Economics study, Environmental assessments (WASH and air quality) and collection of geo-points for the health geography in a record short time.

The team is made up of Alice Kombo, Antony Tangai, Christine Dama, Grace Maitha, Irene Chadi, Kevin Baya, Sharon Konde, and Onesmus Wanje, who also doubles as the team lead.
